Defend your dome from wave after wave of monsters in this innovative roguelike survival miner, Dome Keeper. Use the time between each attack to dig beneath the surface in search of valuable resources and artifacts – use them carefully to choose powerful upgrades and bonuses. Set on beautifully crafted pixel art alien planets, Dome Keeper offers a captivating atmosphere, music tracks fusing melodic and synthetic creations together with a sense of wonder meeting the jet age that makes you want to come back for more. Dig Drill tunnels beneath your dome in search of precious materials or to uncover powerful hidden artifacts. Watch the time, you need to get back to the dome and be ready when the next wave of attack comes. How deep will you get this time? How much can you carry back?
Take control of your defenses to fend off the alien attacks. Air and ground, slow and fast; the attackers must be prioritized and dealt with before they tear your dome apart. Develop Utilize your mineral harvest to unlock powerful upgrades: augment your weapons, enhance the impact of your drill, boost your jetpack’s max speed, and many other upgrade paths — each of which gives you and your dome the best odds for survival! Just like them, after 30 minutes I thought it was getting stale and I had seen all the upgrades but then I found a relic and that’s when I realised how good this game truly was. Good for short and long sessions. I kept telling myself: “one more wave”. 10/10 would recommend to anyone.
Dome Keeper is two games in one: first, a digging game where you find and spend resources to power yourself and your base; second, a defense game where you attack monsters and try and stay alive. The thing is, the first part of the game is far more interesting than the second part. I don’t find the defense/combat part particularly fun, and I’m always excited for those rounds to be over. I’ve started to unlock new modes, so I’m curious if that will help the game have more staying power. I enjoy the loop of digging down, coming up to defend, then digging back down, but as it stands I’m not sure how long this will stay interesting. I recommend it because it’s novel and really fun to play moment-to-moment. The digging is crunchy and satisfying, and upgrades actually feel like upgrades. You really have to make decisions about where to spend your points.
